You are not a Southerner if you don't like this recipe. The secret is out and now the Yankees will learn what they have been missing all this time. It's some-kind-of-good.

1 quart milk

1/4 pound (1 stick) unsalted butter

1 cup 3-minute grits

4 ounces Swiss or Gruyère cheese, grated (1 cup)

Salt and freshly ground pepper

1 ounce Parmesan cheese, grated (1/4 cup)

Preheat oven to 375° F.

Bring milk and butter to a slow boil and stir in grits slowly. Stir often until mixture thickens.

Put dots of butter on top and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes.
